that's a nice, good story. eric? eric: that's just wonderful. they're like the turtle version of those snow birds who go from the northeast down to florida in the winter. good for them. eric: we're back at 4 ian. ♪ -- 4 ian. ♪ ♪ >> you just take a look at just about every state that we're talking about, every swing state that we're talking about, and they did these massive dumps of votes. and all of a sudden, i went from winning by a lot to losing by a little. this election was rigged. this election was a total fraud. leland: president trump speaking exclusively on "sunday morning futures" today for his first interview since the election. marine one landing, the president and his grandkids walking off to the white house after spending the thanksgiving weekend at camp david. 1 p.m. eastern here in
10:01 am
washington, and with that, welcome to "america's news headquarters," i'm leland are visit earth. kristin: and i'm kristin fisher. the president also signaled that he has no intention of conceding even as the presidential transition moves ahead. david spunt joins us live at the white house where the just returned from camp david. >> reporter: hey, kristin. the president said point-blank about the election that his mind will not change in six months, so for his supporters, for those close to the president hoping that maybe he might concede, that he he might accept joe biden as the next president of the united states when he gets sworn in on january 20th, there is your answer when he says that his mind will not be made up in six months. now, he doubled, tripled, even quadrupled down on his claims that the election was fraudulent, though no indication that is the case. joe biden is the president-elect. he took 306 electoral votes. the president 232, the same spread, actually, that trump and
10:02 am
secretary hillary clinton took in the year 2016, four years ago. one thing new though i heard from the president in this interview with maria, he seemed a little bit more possess mustic about his chances -- pessimistic with his chances with the supreme court. >> well, the problem is it's hard to get into the supreme court. i've got the best supreme court advocates, lawyers that want to argue the case if it gets there. but they said it's very hard to get a case up there. can you imagine, donald trump, president of the united states, files a case, and i probably can't get a case. >> reporter: the trump legal team will file an application with the supreme court. it will go to justice samuel alito just because he oversees the third circuit court of appeals in pennsylvania. kristin, he could rule on the application himself to give the trump campaign more time to argue which could delay the electoral process this pennsylvania. i say delay, it doesn't necessarily mean it would
10:03 am
overturn any results as biden won the state of pennsylvania. in another legal blow, speaking of pennsylvania, to the president's strategy, the pennsylvania supreme court last night ruled against a small group of republicans including congressman mike kelly, see him right there, and a congressional candidate named sean parnell. they wanted to stop the certification of the state's votes and overturn a pennsylvania law for about a year that allowed no excuse mail-in voting meaning anybody could request a mail-in ballot without an excuse. attorney general welcome back josh shapiro, the democrat from pennsylvania: the supreme court has dismissed the suit that was attempting to throw out the votes of 2.5 million pennsylvanians and halt certify caution. another big state president trump continues to focus on is georgia. obviously, we know that this coming saturday he's going to campaign for kelly loeffler and david perdue, that's going to determine the majority in the united states senate. but something interesting the president said in that interview
10:04 am
with maria bart promow, he said about brian kemp, the governor he endorsed, he said he regrets endorsing him because he believes governor kemp has not stuck up for him in georgia. kristin? kristin: and now the president's heading to georgia next saturday. david spunt live from the north lawn, thanks. leland: kelly loeffler also said she thought the republican secretary of astronaut should resign in georgia. the transition, though, is continuing. president-elect joe biden is set to receive his first presidential daily brief tomorrow as he continues to finalize the next round of picks for husband cabinet. jacqui heinrich is following the president-elect in wilmington the, delaware, today. >> hi, leland. transition 46 is at work this weekend announcing three new advisers to the coronavirus task force reflecting the president-elect's priorities; officials with experience who will address inequities. it's a formula he has kept so far with cabinet nominees.
10:05 am
janet yellen is poised to become the first woman to head up the treasure true, and equally historic con tenders michelle flournoy and jeh johnson are up for secretary of defense. in a letter to bind, the congressional hispanic caucus is arguing for michelle lujan sham to head up health and human services. there is little time after the delayed transition held up coordinate nation with federal agencies. biden's set to receive his first intelligence briefing tomorrow. his team will also begin briefing on vaccine distribution, testing and supply chain concerns later on this week. >> when will you begin briefing the biden administration? >> i hope on monday because what's really critical is we've spent the last nine months really developing sophisticated databases that are bringing together information from across the country down to the county
10:06 am
level. we can see who's being admitted. >> reporter: biden's team says the transition has been cooperative, and the general services administration has been helpful in providing i.t. resources like government e-mails and laptops. leland? leland: yeah. some of the security briefings as well that begin this week. thank you. kristin? kristin: lawmakers are heading back to capitol hill this week, and this could be congress' last chance to pass a stimulus bill before 2021. kevin corke joins us live and bring us up to speed on where those negotiations stand right now. >> reporter: yeah. unfortunately, kristin, as you and i have discussed on numerous occasions, talks remain at an impasse over on capitol hill. however, and this is important, there is a belief, a growing sense on capitol hill that that log jam not only can, but absolutely must be broken. and there's this, fox news has learned that there are some measures that may be attached to a spending package that has to
10:07 am
pass by december 11th to avert a government shutdown. all this is happening as federal health officials are meeting this week to make crucial decisions about who they will recommend getting the coronavirus vaccine first out there to the public. but even as all this is going on, the bottom line is this: pressure is mounting on congress to step up and strike a deal. >> and so that, to me, is just fundamentally wrong to say you're out of business now and that your workers are unemployed particularly whenever there's not any cares act relief package anymore. >> i'll tell you what was really make a difference here, a big federal stimulus sooner than later with a lifeline to small businesses, restaurants, folks who are unemployed. that would be a game-changer not just in their lives and in their prospects. >> reporter: you get the sense right there they're talking about the impact on small business, and that's important because, as you know, more americans work for small businesses than any other
10:08 am
sector. and keep this in mind, house speaker nancy pelosi has been offered a $1.8 trillion deal by the white house and gop. she turned it down. she said it was flat out insufficient to cover all the needs of many states around the country. we'll see if somehow, some way they can break this impasse. kristin? kristin: yeah. we'll talk to congresswoman debbie dingell, democrat, in just a few minutes. kevin corke, thank you. leland: arkansas congressman, member of the house armed services committee, congressman, appreciate you being there. congress hasn't been able to get the second stimulus bill now for six or seven months. it's going to happen in the next 11 days? >> well, leland, happy thanksgiving. thanks for having me. it should. we've been trying to get exactly those common sense measures that both governors talked about passed since late july. leland: yeah. >> and we need to get this done. we need to extend the paycheck protection program for our small businesses. we need to give our governors flexibility to spend the cares
10:09 am
act money that they have, and that's critical because that date ends 12/31 of this year. so we we need to do that. and finally for our families that are still suffering, they need access and knowledge about -- leland: yeah, i think a lot of people could agree there's a number of things that should happen in washington that don't always happen the way they should in washington. bipartisan agreement, perhaps, on that point. not on the issues. in arkansas -- that was asa hutchinson, your governor, who was on earlier. coronavirus cases are going just about like this, on their way up. almost 1,000 people right now hospitalized, 2449 deaths, this was just another dozen plus deaths overnight here in arkansas. seems as though this is pretty much out of control in your state s. is that a fair characterization? >> well, our cases have been growing like they are around the country. i think the governor has
10:10 am
provided the resources that our hospitals need, our hospitals have excellent contingency planning and adequate ppe and ventilators to support, our treatments are better. but we do need our citizens in this state and across the united states to wear a mask and do social distancing. leland: interesting though, governor hutchinson has not mandated things and locked things down in the way that other governors have. he's resisted that all along. now the cases are, in your own words, skyrocketing. do you think he made a mistake? >> no. i think he struck a balance between keeping the economy open, people employed, people having income, balancing the needs of the state and local taxpayers and the public health. and i think we've spreadinged that public if health issue quite well, and i can appreciate the governor's exercise. we do have a mask ordinance working with our cities and our counties, and we do urge everyone to wear a mask in this state and follow the cdc
10:11 am
standards. leland: he made a similar point to bret baier on "fox news sunday." i want to get your thoughts on this because i also know you're very interested in homeland security and part of that. this is admiral mcraven who famously was commander of the seal team six raid that killed osama bin laden. this is him talking about what might happen with the iranians in response to the killing of their top scientist in their nuclear program. >> the iranians are going to be in a position where of they have to retaliate. they're going to have to save face, and so now the issue becomes what does that retaliation look like. leland: should people in the united states, do you think, be worried that the iranians and the irgc are going to try to launch any attacks heresome. >> i don't believe so. i think america is prepared for whatever the iranians do. it's clear that the iranian leaders have left their people behind. their currency is devalued 80%, but it's a radical regime that's
10:12 am
a troublemaker in the region. it's the biggest terrorist threat in the region, and i believe that president trump was right to exit from the iranian deal. i believe he was right to add sanctions and have mucks mum pressure on the regime, and i believe he was right to take out soleimani as the terror leader in iran. but we are prepared, i'm sure iran and europeans are prepared for anything that the iranians may attempt. leland: well, noteworthy there, there were predictions of world war iii after the culling of suleiman gnu. the iranians didn't do much, and right now there's three new arab-israeli peace deals in president trump's belt since then. so the projections of dire consequences aren't always correct, as you point out, congressman. good to see you, sir. >> good to see you, leland. thank you. kristin: let's turn to democratic michigan congresswoman and cochair of the house democratic powell and communications committee, congresswoman tennessee by dingell. congresswoman, thank you for being with us. i'd like the start where leland left off. how much did the assassination
10:13 am
of iran's most senior nuclear scientist complicate things for the incoming biden administration as they attempt to renegotiate or reenter a nuclear deal with that country? >> i think what's really clear right now is why we need strong, steady, trustworthy leadership which the biden administration will bring to foreign affairs. and, by the way, when you have these kinds of very difficult moments in the world order here, to say why you need to have strong alliances with other countries. so did it complicate it? of course it did. but i believe that we will have very strong leadership 'em under president-elect biden and look forward to restoring calmness, dignity, strength to our diplomatic strategy. kristin: another challenge for the president-elect is the fact that his predecessor is likely going to be challenging his
10:14 am
legitimacy for months to come. i mean, listen to what president trump told fox business' maria bartiromo on "sunday morning futures" just this morning, and then i'll get your reaction on the other side. >> it's not like you're going to change my mind. in other words, my mind will not change in six months. there was tremendous cheating here. kristin: my mind will not change in six months according to president trump. i mean, this is going to to be another challenge for president-elect joe biden. >> you know, it's one of the reasons i'm so aping true about what -- angry about what president trump did in michigan, pennsylvania, a number of other states. there is no question that joe biden won michigan by far more votes than president trump did four years ago. but the fact of the matter is, is that this is trying very hard to undermine people's confidence in the election and undermine the integrity of these elections. i think people should look at what a trump-appointed
10:15 am
republican judge said yesterday in his rule. the fact of the matter is joe biden has won this election legitimately across the country. you know, when donald trump won michigan four years ago, it was by 11,000, less than 11,000 votes. i said he's president, we need to support our president. that's what he needs to be doing now with a steady, orderly transition of government. kristin: i want to ask you a bit about covid relief, a stimulus package on capitol hill, but before i do, would you give president trump credit and the trump administration credit for the incredible results that operation warp speed has been able to achieve with all this great news about a a vaccine possiblyinging being distributed and administered within the next two weeks in do president trump and husband administering deserve the credit for that? >> i don't know. i do believe that scientists around the world -- there's
10:16 am
questions on, pfizer did not take any money, and i'm very proud that that's produced in michigan. but i, quite frankly, will never forgive the president for making or politicizing covid in the way that he has done. the wearing of masks, the politics of covid should never have been what it is now in this country and, quite frankly, is contributing to us spread and surging numbers. kristin: speaking of the politics of covid, it's looking almost certain that congress is not going on to be able to -- >> i won't say that to you. kristin: you won't say that? really? so you think there's a good chance that congress will pass some sort of stimulus between now and january 20th? >> i'm going to tell you two things. one, you cannot come from being in your home district during thanksgiving day and not know how desperate people are. michigan is, as one state, but you're seeing it across the states is one of the state that shut down. it went on pause and business
10:17 am
ownerrer after restaurant owner after person that watched their jobs reached out during the holiday desperate. and, two, we have a president-elect who has said you cannot wait until i am sworn in. you must act. you must do something in december. anybody with heart knows that we have got to come together and figure something out in december. the country needs it, the country demands it, and it's our job. kristin: congresswoman, i know so many americans degree agree with you -- agree with you and hope that you are right that congress will be able to come together and get another stimulus package through for the first time since way back in march which is hard to believe it's been that long. congresswoman tennessee by dingell, thank you so much and happy hold days to you. >> thank you. and to you. kristin: we're going to have a lot more on all of this on "fox news sunday." bret baier is in for chris wallace, and he has an exclusive interview with arkansas golf asa hutchinson. of he'll also talk with new

10:36 am
the more liberal democratic lawmakers, and they will tell you the police is the problem. if only we didn't have racist cops, none of these spikes in crime would happen. >> you know, first, leland, it's good being with you and your audience, but i've got to tell you police work right now is in a great state of confusion. when you hear about defunding, disbanding police departments, this certainly is what has created havoc in law enforcement. and not only that, neil, you've got city officials right now who are trying to control police departments, and as a result of that you've got chiefs of police in dallas, for instance, in seattle, washington, in washington, d.c., these chiefs are leaving the police department or resigning because of the fact that they're not even able to control their own police departments. leland: well, and a lot of them feel as though their officers are in danger because of the policies put in place by the that mayor and the city councils
10:37 am
of these cities. you mentioned a number of police chiefs speaking out. here's another one, minneapolis. take a listen. >> we can go back and forth on this, but every day that we go back and forth on this people are dying in our city. if you choose -- and you have every right to -- if you choose to say no to these victims of crime, then please stand by that. leland: there was a pretty clear effect, and you did a lot of reporting on this at the time, we called it the ferguson effect, the baltimore effect of police who are well-intentioned and, obviously, risking their lives to protect all of us. but on the beat cops, typically taking a step back because they don't feel they're going to get any support when things go wrong. is that now happening across the country? >> that has spread, unfortunately, throughout the country where police officers do not feel that their supervisors, commanders and city officials have their backs. and so morale is at an all-time low on police departments all over this country.
10:38 am
for instance, right now we've got this covid-19 virus, and we have police officers who want to be doing their job in other areas who are having to micromanage individuals within their homes on how they deal with how many people they have at one setting during this covid epidemic. it's off the charts. leland: interesting you bring that up because this is a sheriff in new york who was speaking after busting some house parties which was, quote-unquote we, against the law or the regulations, whatever you want to call it. but with homicides up double digits, hard to imagine that's the biggest threat to public safe few. take a listen. >> the best and most pragmatic method for deputy e sheriffs to save lives to maximize enforcement at these types of dangerous gatherings. the sheriff's office will be concentrating on large scale gatherings. leland: clearly, those directives not only come from the sheriff, but they come from those who he reports to as well.
10:39 am
i guess the question would be this: would the people of new or any other city be better served with the police trying to deal with violent crime than how many people show up at a thanksgiving event? >> i really believe it's dealing with violent crime is more of a prerequisite to what should happen in our society than the virus. now, the virus is very important, and we do want people to act responsibly. we do want them -- leland: yeah. >> but we also want police officers to be out this. when you've got -- talking about the homicides. homicides are up in most of the major metropolitan cities, and the rationaling that is because people are now indoors -- leland: right. well, sadly, a lot of american, major american is cities homicides are up, but homicide prosecutions are down. even if police do arrest somebody, a lot of the prosecutors just aren't bothing to file cases. i know there's a number of
10:40 am
police that are very frustrated about that, for example, in st. louis city. ted, sadly, we're going to be talking a lot more, my friend. >> yes, unfortunately. and you are absolutely on target about the cause and effect here. and that is -- leland: we've got to run. we appreciate it. >> okay. thank you. kristin: millions of americans are traveling home right now after the thanksgiving holiday, and they're passing through places like new's penn station. that's where we find alex hogan. >> reporter: hi, kristin. last year was the busiest travel day of the year, so we'll look at the numbers of people traveling today, the weather they should expect coming up after the break. ♪ ndy listening to my goals and making plans. this is us talking tax-smart investing, managing risk, and all the ways schwab can help me invest. this is andy reminding me how i can keep my investing costs low and that there's no fee to work with him. here's me learning about schwab's satisfaction guarantee. accountability, i like it.
